TDOT Halts Lane Closures For The Holidays
Road construction will be taking a Christmas break as well. The Tennessee Department of Transportation announced on Monday the halt of all temporary lane closures on Tennessee roadways through the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. No temporary lane closures will be allowed for construction projects on Tennessee roadways beginning at midnight on Thursday, December 23, 2021 and continuing through 6:00 a.m. on Monday, January 3, 2022.
There are a few long-term closures that must remain for safety reasons, but all construction-related closures will be suspended during the holiday period. TDOT reminds you that workers may still be on-site in some construction zones…so drivers should watch their speed in construction areas. AAA Travel expects more than 109 million Americans to travel over the next two weeks, with a majority of them driving. More than 2.6 million Tennesseans are forecast to travel between December 23 and January 2.
